Wednesdays at Hillcrest
Wednesdays look different at Hillcrest.
For this next session of Wednesdays at Hillcrest, we’re gathering around ONE important topic for four weeks and we’d love for you to be there! Childcare is available for birth through fifth grade with registration.
Session #1: Race, Culture and the Church January 9 to 30, 6:30 to 8 PM in the sanctuary
We are still waiting for the fulfillment of Martin Luther King's dream. Yet it is a Christian dream. God has given us in scripture a vision of the redeemed as "a great multitude that no one can count, from every nation, tribe, people, and language, standing before the throne" (Revelation 7:9). That dream we know will come true. Meanwhile inspired by it, we should seek at least an approximation to it on earth, namely a society characterized by justice (no discrimination) and harmony (no conflict) for all ethnic groups. We are looking for a fully integrated society which continues to celebrate diversity.
In our class Melvin Cole, Co-pastor of Freedom Covenant Church, will help us take a journey toward that multi-ethnic dream. Because of the glory of the church, we must rid ourselves of any lingering racism and strive to make it a model of harmony "Celebrating Ethnic Diversity".
